Hoover Fusion U5180-900

I purchased a Hoover Fusion U5180-900. It powers on and off great but there is no suction. I have checked all the filters and checked for blockage in all hoses. What else can I try to fix this problem.

Double-checking for blockages in the hoses (if necessary by making sure you can poke a bit of wire through them) still has to be a good next move. Next, follow the path the sucked-in air is meant to take, checking for leaks (best way to do this is to run the machine an listen for loud sucking noises). Likely causes are things not put together right, controls set wrong,hoses not properly attached to their couplings or missing seals. If none of these things, and it is new, I'd take it back to the place you got it from and get them either to show you why there's nothing wrong with it, or to replace it. A

My vax pet Hoover has lost its suction I've emptied it there's no blockages and Iv cleaned the filter

first, if it has a hose check for being plugged, you may have to take the vacuum apart further till you reach the fan on motor which may have hair,lint,etc wrapped around it which can cause low suction.

My carpet shampooer will not **** the water back up. It is a Hoover Steamvac Deluxe 1600.


Check the filters, make sure they aren't clogged. Also if this has the foam filter on the inside of the tank lid, make sure it has at least a 1/4 is gap from the top.

My Hetty Hoover has no suction, but when I take the filter out it has suction Please help!

Throw away your old filter if it is not cleanable. Only clean it if it is a washable filter. If not, buy a new one

The Hoover switches on and the brush rotates but the actual Hoover doesn't come on?

Hi, is there suction when you open the top of the wand handle?

If no, have you emptied the container. next check the tubes that are removable, you may find there is a blockage of hair and bits, have you removed filter and given it a goos wash.

I have a Hoover Windtunnel UH70212. Just a few months old. I used the attachments a while back and now there is very little suction. The power brush attachment doesn't work at all. Any suggestions?

If there is no suction, there has to be a blockage somewhere in the dirt path. You should hear the motor working a little harder in this condition. Please check the entire dirt path from floor to exhaust (clean all filters too) to find the obstruction.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

I have a Hoover Wind Tunnel Self propelled 12amp. There seems to be very little suction. I have cleaned the hoses and filters but still not much suction. any ideas? thanks.

Make sure all filters are cleaned out and entry ways are clear of all debris. Remove hose and check for blockage. Usually the low suction can be remedied when all filters are cleaned. Hope this works for you.

Just bought this Hoover Fusion vaccum used, cleaned it up, checked belt and filter, turned it on and is extremely loud, almost like a scream. Any idea what could be causing this and how to fix?

Loud noises from this model are caused by dirt build up on the suction fan mounted directly to the motor. Under the dirt cup there is a filter screen that should have a foam filter insert, when not used or cleaned properly allows dirt to get into the motor. Cleaning is the best option. Although if you are inclined, you can take it apart or take it to your local deaLer.

My suction blocked light keeps coming on my Hoover Whisper vacuum. I've check all areas and can't find a blockage.

Remove the filter bin and open the compartment pictured under it. You probably need to wash the sponge filter per the manual. It fixed the problem for me and doubled the suction.

Hoover Windtunnel 3 air cordless vacuum: Broke the brush-head off the body & can't get it apart to fix it. I broke both legs off the Fork which holds the vacuum head to the motor housing / body of the vac while trying to engage the upright-position-lock. I can't get the remains of the swivel-piece off to glue the fork legs back on to it. I took the screws out of the motor housing, but the housing halves still seem to be joined by the swivel, and I don't dare pry too hard. Any help out there? ************************************************************* HEY! I figured it out! All I had to do was take out the chrome screw & washer at the pivot point for the brush-head (which I thought was the motor housing, but it's not), opposite the brush-head itself, and force the metal shaft which the screw was in out of the housing, which was hard as hell. I got another screw similar to the original (metric, M4 x 0.7 x approx 35mm long) and screwed it part way into the hole the previous screw came out of, then I hammered on it fairly gently but repeatedly and it came out the other side bit-by-bit. (If you use the original screw to hammer on, you'll destroy the phillips-head recess.) It's extremely awkward to figure a way to brace the vacuum against the hammer blows without damaging anything, but if it's not braced solidly I doubt the shaft will ever come out. I can barely believe a press-fit in a plastic part held SO tight!
